The Self Tanning Mousse
54 reviews


You may have noticed a change to our branding on our tan bottles, however rest assured its the same flawless tanning mousse, with a fresh update to our name. Same formula, new name ready for global domination. Stay tuned for more exciting updates to come.

This lightweight, velvety self-tanning mousse by ELEFFECT glides onto skin, leaving behind a perfect golden glow and nothing else. (No weird biscuit-y smell here - ELEFFECT Tan is scented with real rose oil.)

The formula is streak-free and easy to apply with our ELEFFECT Mitt, whether you’re a total novice or an experienced tanner.

It’s also customisable to suit your individual skin tone. Apply one layer for an understated Bondi cool-girl bronze, two for a glam lounging by the pool in LA look, and three for a 'just got back from a tropical holiday' kinda vibe.

More Information

• The rose scent in our tan comes from the addition of Essential Rose Oil, which also has hydrating benefits.
• To reach that hard-to-get spot on your back, place your application mitt onto a wooden spoon, secure with an elastic band and you can’t go wrong.
• The ELEFFECT Mousse texture is perfect for all skin types and is lightweight enough for the face. The buildable formulation of ELEFFECT will adapt to your skin tone as you apply the tan.
• The Brush is also great to apply the self-tanning mousse to your face.
• To correct a tanning mistake, use a small amount of The Wash with The Exfoliating mitt and brush the skin upwards. The mistake should melt away.
• Elle likes to reapply her face tan after 3 days, as skincare products can fade the tan here faster than our body products.
• During the week, avoid use of oil-based body washes and lotions, as these will fade your tan faster.

Amazing product

Amazing product, I have been using this tan for years now for the many wonderful reasons:- it is a natural beautiful colour, it smells amazing, it’s easy to apply, ingredients are friendly and the other wonderful thing about this product that no other tan I have previously tried before has done is that this wonderful tan as it wears off it doesn’t give any patchy areas what so ever, it fades amazingly back to bare, no patchy awful look, just fades so softly back to bare, no one ever knows when I’m wearing this wonderful tan. It’s truly perfect! Thank you Elle!! Haven’t turned back to using anything else for years now!! Highly recommend this to everyone
